Surfing data

The IT systems and the software procedures designated to operate this website acquire some personal data during their normal operation; the transmission of such data is implicit in the use of the Internet communication protocols.

The information concerned is not collected in order to be associated with identified interested parties, but due to its inherent nature such information could enable the users to be identified via processing and associations with data held by third parties.

This data category includes the IP addresses or the domain names of the computers utilised by the users that connect with the site, the URI (“Uniform Resource Identifier”) notation addresses of the resources requested, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained with the reply, the numerical code indicating the status of the response given by the server (positive result, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the user's operating system and to the IT environment.

These data are used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information concerning the site's use and to monitor the website's correct operation and are deleted immediately after processing. The data could be used to establish liability in the case of hypothetical computer crimes which damage the site: except for this possibility, the data concerning web contacts do not currently remain for more than 7 days.



Cookies are not used to transmit personal information, nor are so-called persistent cookies of any kind or systems to trace users utilised.

The use of so-called session cookies (which are not stored in a persistent form on the user's computer and disappear when the browser is closed) is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifying data (consisting of random numbers generated by the server) and are necessary to enable the site to be explored safely and effectively.

The so-called session cookies used on this site avoid resorting to other IT techniques which are prejudicial to the confidentiality of the users' surfing and do not enable the user's personal identifying data to be acquired.
